With so many Britons choosing to work, study or spend their retirement across the English Channel, there are thousands of people who need to send money to France everyday.
Perhaps you have family living in France, or you plan to celebrate a wedding or big birthday there. Whatever the reason for your international money transfer, you will be eager to find the best exchange rate – and avoid costly transfer fees.

What information do I need to send money to France?
To transfer money to France you will need to provide your personal information and details of the payee, including their name, account number and contact details. The recipient can be your own bank account in France or someone else’s. You will also need to state briefly the reason for the transfer.
Simply select the currency you wish to transfer to, and the amount you wish to transfer. Payments can range from a modest sum to pay a French supplier, to a large amount of currency if you have your eyes on your own château.
Can I make regular payments to France?
Yes. If you do snap up that château, you may need to make regular mortgage repayments to a French lender. If you plan to retire to your new abode, you may wish to transfer your UK pension payments to your French bank account.
To set up any regular payment to France, simply log in to your moneycorp account, select the amount and frequency – weekly, monthly or quarterly – and transfer the money from the date you choose.
Furthermore, to protect you against fluctuations in the currency market, you have the opportunity to fix the exchange rate for up to two years with a forward contract.
